Tarte Cosmetics has recently spoiled us giving all these new makeup goodies. Like I needed another reason to love Tarte!
If you have never owned any Tarte products, you should. The reason I stand behind the brand is because the products are excellent. They are natural, vegan and overall a great company with stellar customer service.
Last year, Tarte launched one of the best concealers I have ever used. Shape Tape. This stuff is wonderful! Why? It is creamy but it lasts. It is thick but does not settle and make you appear cracky. There are some concealers no matter how you set the foundation, you can look like dried up mud under your eyes.
Recently, Tarte Cosmetics came out with Shape Tape Foundation. You can try Matte or Hydrating. Two choices make it great for any skin type. I love the benefit of having two foundations for my winter and summer foundations!
I ordered the Shape Tape Matte Foundation. It is thick like the concealer but it blends across skin effortlessly. I ordered the Paddle Foundation Brush to go along with my foundation. I love it!!!! These brushes can be tricky to use. The trick is apply foundation with the wand on your face. I dot foundation allover my skin. I take the paddle brush and work the foundation in the same direction on the skin. Treat the paddle like a paint brush. If you go back over the section you just blended, you will remove the makeup. These brushes are very dense and will create a flawless finish. The density can work against you removing the foundation. Practice practice!
Bottom line review is I loved the foundation. My skin felt supple but not shiny. My imperfections were covered but not caked on. This is a must for me. I absolutely do not like my skin to feel too heavy with makeup. This foundation was so great I hardly needed any concealer. I bought a colour a touch too light so I ordered another in a darker shade. I decided to keep this light foundation and use it as concealer for my clients! My skin is prone to breakouts. At the end of the day when I removed my makeup, my skin was great and it never any reaction what so ever.
Thumbs up Tarte Cosmetics 🙂
